Barack Obama Advisor Warren Buffet Gives Millions to Pro-Abortion Groups

Washington, DC (LifeNews.com) -- During the third and final presidential debate last week, Barack Obama mentioned investment guru Warren Buffet as a financial advisor. Obama called Buffet a "my friend and supporter," but failed to mention Buffet has given millions of dollars to pro-abortion groups.
Buffett is the chairman and CEO of Berkshire Hathaway and, due to public pressure from pro-life advocates, Berkshire Hathaway announced in June 2003 that it would end all corporate charitable donations.
Prior to that, through his Buffett Foundation, Buffett supported the most radical aspects of the population control movement such as providing $2 million to fund clinical trials of Mifepristone (RU-486) -- the dangerous abortion drug that has killed more than a dozen women worldwide.
Buffett also provided $2 million to Family Health International for the distribution of quinacrine hydrochloride, a chemical that sterilizes a woman by burning her fallopian tubes.
Quinacrine is illegal in the U.S., but is used, often coercively, in Vietnam, India, and other nations.
In the late 1990s, Buffett committed to a $20 million grant to International Projects Assistance Services (IPAS), which manufactures and distributes manual vacuum aspirators, used for performing abortions in impoverished countries.
Buffet had also made donations to Planned Parenthood in the name of Pampered Chef, a cooking sales program with a high participation from Christian women. After Berkshire Hathaway purchased Pampered Chef, it donated $11 million to pro-abortion organizations in 2002.
The only thing allowing evil to flourish, is good people doing nothing!!
NO CHILD KILLING WITH TRANQUILITY!!
